BISHKEK, March 6 (Itar-Tass) — Kyrgyz police launched a search for Akhmet Bakiyev, brother of the former president, the press service of the republic’s State Penitentiary Service /GSIN/ told Itar-Tass on Tuesday.
"A search is underway to establish the whereabouts of Bakiyev," the press service said, "an APB on Bakiyev was sent to directors of the Interior ministry, the State Committee of National Security and Border Troops.
"Bakiyev was hospitalized to Bishkek's hospital # 6, where he had been treated before February 6.
"Then he was transferred to a private medical centre. During his stay there, personnel of penitentiary # 35 checked on him daily, as the check-up log indicates.
During the March 3 check, the penitentiary personnel did not find Bakiyev at his place.
He was not guarded at the hospital, because guards are unnecessary for persons serving their sentences in a penal colony.
Several months ago, a court sentenced Bakiyev, 52, to seven years in prison for organizing mass disturbances in April-May 2010. He is the brother of Kurmanbek Bakiyev, the Kyrgyz president who fled the country after the April 2010 revolution.
During his term in office, Akhmat Bakiyev was regarded as "the shadow governor" of the republic's Jalalabad region.
Some Kyrgyz media outlets cited medics as saying Bakiyev had a serious illness.
